23 - the songs for "bleed am/self-titled" were very direct in presentation. partly due to our limited budget and time. partly it was a creative decision to make the most concise and simple tunes we could simplifying them seemed like an academic challenge, like a puzzle: find the best and shortest route to present the fullest and most effective song. this creative direction was in response to the material on our clarity album, there we let things be looser and move atmospheric. 23 was trying to use both approaches in the same song. this is the best example of where we were coming from working on the songs for futures. we let the song go where we thought it wanted to, trying to give it enough dynamics to feel complete. we decided to let the songs breathe and have space to explore themes. it is ok to have the vocal entrance a few minutes into the song if you still get the feeling you are being led somewhere interesting. --jim


Jimmy Eat World formed in Mesa, Arizona, United States in 1993. They are associated with an array of genres including emo, alternative rock, indie rock and pop punk. Singer/guitarist Jim Adkins and drummer Zach Lind, who had been friends since kindergarten, joined forces with co-vocalist/guitarist Tom Linton and bass player Mitch Porter to try their hand at music.

23 - Jimmy Eat World

I felt for sure last night,
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I won't always love these selfish things
I won't always live not stopping

It was my time to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

Amazing still it seems
I'll be 23
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
